One of our absolute best selling products are The Tartan Blanket Co Picnic Blankets. With Summer on the way, combined with easing restrictions, they are the perfect item to take on your outings, or gift to a loved one.
Mum's Grapevine is a wonderful initiative, helping Mum’s from New Zealand and Australia find amazing products and businesses, supporting small retailers like us hugely in the process. We have been lucky enough to have one of the products we sell be included in their list of 10 Picnic Blankets for Aussie Families, and we are so grateful the blankets are showcased among the best in the market. The Tartan Blanket & Co picnic blankets have a bunch of unique qualities that really set them apart from the rest - which we love!
For starters, they are crafted using 70% Recycled Wool, and 30% Mixed Recycled Fibres. You may be wondering what is so special about recycled wool - or why recycled wool may be preferable over normal wool. The Tartan Blanket Co strived to design a blanket that was truly sustainable in every possible way. They pioneered their own process where recycled wool is blended with longer mixed fibres saved from landfill, to create a durable yarn which is then woven into a dense twill weave and brushed for texture. And yes - despite how recycled wool may sound, we promise it is still super soft and comfy to enjoy your picnic on. These picnic blankets boast all the wonderful benefits of wool - while being incredibly sustainable and gentle on the environment!
The blankets are also lined with a waterproof backing to protect both the blanket itself, and you, from any moisture or dirt while in use. This can be easily wiped down after use, or simply throw the blanket in the machine on a wool cycle and lay flat to dry.
The process of creating the blanket means there is a chance the pre-loved fibres may differ slightly in colour and design from blanket to blanket - it really just adds to the charm of these amazing products.
As I am sure you can tell, here at Merino & Me we are very passionate about these blankets, and know you will love it too. Whether you are in search of a picnic blanket for yourself to enjoy in the sun, something for the kids to play on or after a thoughtful gift for an occasion, we have you covered.
